Who Built the Moon?, the third album from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, was released last year on Sour Mash Records. It is gold certified and debuted at the top of the UK album charts – making it a hat- trick of number one solo records, following 2011’s eponymous album and 2015’s Chasing Yesterday.

It is also a record-breaking 10th consecutive chart-topping studio album for Noel – no other artist has a perfect streak of No.1 studio albums as long as Noel.

After bringing their rousing live show to the stage in the UK, Europe and North America, plus festivals around the world, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds continue the huge Stranded On The Earth World Tour 2018-2019, with a string of headline festival appearances this summer across the country.
